Surface Hip Piercing Info?
I don't have that piercing, but I know that with any piercing it is best to let them get air and not keep them coveredMake sure you're not like rubbing it in dirt though, but that's a givenI probably would bandage them at night, I know every time I get a new one I have to bandage it at night otherwise when I toss and turn it breaks the skin and then I wake up with sheet and blanket fiber stuck in my dried bloodYuck.

You can drill out the old ones with a drill bit no larger than the original rivet shank, but you may have to go up one size for your replacement rivets should the old hole(s) be deformedUse blind rivets - and marine rated at that if at all possible if replacing the smaller typesRivet blanks for the bigger may be available from airframe suppliers if you cannot get them from the maker of your hull, these need to be peened, and may require load washersIn all cases used Dura-Lac or a similar anti-corrosive bedding compound generously, two coats - the first to all contact surfaces and allow to dry, then apply a second coat and fasten/peen while wetThis will largely eliminate electrolysis and other hidden corrosion issues within the joint for a long timeRivets are structural membersand must be replaced like for like to maintain the integrity of any structure so designed.
